Description

Finding a straightforward approach to educational evaluations is the most important step toward discovering and reporting the meaningful results underlying the hard work of education. Kaufman, Guerra and Platt present program evaluation as a trouble-free process that any educator can effectively complete while providing the evidence required to justify and validate any educational endeavor.

Drawing from the education, business, and military fields, this accessible resource shows educators, administrators, politicians, learners, and parents how to distill evaluations to uncover what works and what doesn't. Practical Evaluation for Educators breaks down the program evaluation process into four easy-to-understand steps:

  • Align and direct evaluation questions into useful queries aimed at the intended results of educational programs
  • Observe to gather pertinent, valid, and useful data
  • Compare the results of what was accomplished to what was planned to be accomplished
  • Use the data by taking action and adjusting programs to bring them into alignment with societal needs
